In the esteemed presence of Pujya Doctor Swami, the annual Satsang Shibir was held from 12 to 15 October 2002 at the Gujarati College in Bhawanipore.
The shibir was divided
into 3 sections:
Pujya Doctor Swami addressed
a joint gathering of the 3 groups twice daily - in the morning and early
evening. Throughout the rest of the day, each of the three groups had
its own schedule.
For the kishores and kishoris, the theme was based on the formula: 'Success = A + B + C + D + E + F.' A, for Aim, explained Shriji Maharaj's mission on earth. B, for Belief, explained Gunatitanand Swami's devotion and love for the true form of Shriji Maharaj. C, for Courage, highlighted Bhagatji Maharaj's courage in the face of intense difficulties. D, for Determination, revealed Shastriji Maharaj's relentless efforts in establishing the philosophy of Akshar Purushottam as revealed by Bhagwan Swaminarayan. E, for Empathy, focused on Yogiji Maharaj's ability to understand and care for all his devotees.

The balaks and balikas

of study, control in watching TV, daily puja and other satsang-related
and general topics.
